BBTB2-Deck the Halls

This week they are Decking the Halls over at Bitten by the Bug 2 Jeri set the challenge and she chose the Winter Frolic cartridge. She said to combine the phrase Deck the Halls (pg. 64) with an ornament from either pages 64 or 65. Now if you don't have this cart, feel free to use another font from another cart to make the phrase and combine it with an ornament from any cart. I decided to use the ornaments from both page 64 and 65. I coated them in Glossy Accents except for the oval and star on the one. I put Diamond Stickles on the little star. I cut the shadow to the phrase so it would stand out from the bg. Used some Diamond Stickles on the star parts and Glossy Accents on the d and c. The bg designer paper is from K and Company-BW Evergreen-Botanical Designer Paper Pad. The Deck the Halls layers were cut from K and Company-Secret Santa-Designer Paper Pad. The star on the inside is the star from the ornament, enlarged on my Gypsy and coated in Glossy Accents. I did something a little different on the inside. I used a smaller piece of paper for the sentiment area. There is a perfectly good reason for that. I glued the star down and then realized that I had forgot to put a piece down for the sentiment!! A slap on the forhead and a big DUH Sharon and then I came up with this idea. I think it works just fine! A little different! LOL Now hop over and join in on the fun! They post a new challenge every Monday so you have plenty of time to create! Hope ya'll like my card mistake and all!!! :)
